MCA: Terengganu proposal to shame Muslims who don't attend Friday prayers is excessive

PETALING JAYA: Punishing Muslims who do not attend Friday prayers by transporting them in a hearse to shame them will appear to be excessive to non-Muslims, said MCA Syariah Law & Policy Implementation Special Task Force chairman Gan Ping Sieu.

"It may even paint a picture of the implementation of Taliban-style religious laws in our country, and it would also be seen as similar to the public shaming of the Dark Ages in Europe," said Gan.
